The history of women in botany and science at the Herbarium Library : evaluation for historical research
Wicker, Sandra J.
Quelle: Kent, 1997. 21 S.
Inhalt: "Evaluating library collections by comparing them to bibliographies has a long history
in research libraries. This evaluative study examined all 107 titles within the 'Women
in Botany' section of the Herbarium Library at The Ohio State University (OSU). The
Herbarium is not part of the OSU Library system, but functions as a satellite to the
Biological Sciences and Pharmacy Library. The bibliographies of five recently (1993-1996)
published scholarly works on the history of women in botany and science were compared
to these titles for the purpose of determining if historical research in the history
of women in botany and science could be supported by this collection. Herbarium titles
accounted for less than 5% of the titles found in any of the five test bibliographies;
therefore, this collection would not have supported the historical research of these
five works. The bibliography with the most matches and the bibliography with the least
matches were searched online in OHIOLINK to compare the relative strengths of the
Herbarium collection against those of The Ohio State University, Bowling Green State
University, and the University of Cincinnati. The results show that the Herbarium
is very weak when compared to any of the three collections. Lists of herbarium titles
found in the five test bibliographies and herbarium titles not found in OHIOLINK are
appended." (author's abstract)|

Inhalt: "Presents an activity that highlights the life of Harriet Brooks, a lesser-known Canadian physicist.
